Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] programlisting line wrap options

Hi Dano,
Yes, the wrap features you were looking at were for printed output to
prevent content from going into the margins and off the page.

For HTML output, programlisting content is output inside a <pre> element,
with the assumption that a browser can scroll to view lines that don't fit
in the current window size.  I don't know if there is a CSS property to add
a wrap feature to a pre element.  Doesn't it still depend on the current
window and font size being used?
